Death Grips are making their Chicago debut @ Bottom Lounge
Death Grips @ Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011 (more by BBG)
As seen on BrooklynVegan, Death Grips (MC Ride, Zach Hill, Flatlander) will follow up 2011's excellent Exmilitary mixtape with two LPs- The Money Store (April 24), No Love (Fall of 2012) -both set to arrive via the trio's new home, Epic Records.
Speaking of Death Grips-releases, they recently put out a series of 109-GIFs, RETROGRADE, that are all meant to be played simultaneously. Intrigued? Visit BrooklynVegan for a bit more information on it.
In just a few days, Death Grips will play three-California shows (two are the Cochellas). Beginning in May they'll tour throughout Europe, returning to the states in June for a string of North American dates. One of those shows happens to be their Chicago debut, on June 20 at the Bottom Lounge. Ticketing info is forthcoming.
